Our program

Side by side Kids serves Pre-k through fifth-grade students in some of the city's most under-resourced areas. SBSK was established to provide after-school academic support and spiritual growth for economically disadvantaged students. Our hope is to provide them with a brighter future by encouraging and equipping them with new skills to reach their highest potential. 


We worked with professors from The University of Texas to develop a new curriculum for our program that breaks up the afternoon into 4 sections- snack time, homework time, crew time, and recreation time. Each week, we focus on different character traits such as faithfulness, compassion, and perseverance. Our educators use a variety of teaching strategies, including physical activities, music, and art.

Research shows that a quality afterschool program can significantly impact a child’s future success. The hours between 3 pm and 6 pm are some of the riskiest for a child and when they are most likely exposed to dangerous choices. At Side By Side Kids, we provide an environment that is safe, supportive, and focused on developing a child’s social, emotional, and academic growth. As a faith-based organization, we highlight the importance of character and how to incorporate these values into everyday life.
